Abstract

. This study develops an economic growth model with residential distribution. The model synthesises the main ideas in the Solow‐Uzawa growth model, the Alonso urban model, and the Muth housing model with perfect competition in all the markets, by proposing an alternative approach to household behaviour. We show that economic growth with the economic geography is governed by a single differential equation and analyse dynamic behaviour of the model. For explanation, we simulate the model over time and space. Resumen. Este estudio desarrolla un modelo de crecimiento económico con distribución residencial. El modelo sintetiza las ideas principales del modelo de crecimiento de Solow‐Uzawa, el modelo urbano de Alonso, y el modelo de vivienda de Muth con una competencia perfecta en todos los mercados, por medio de proponer un enfoque alternativo al comportamiento de hogares. Mostramos que el crecimiento económico con la geografía económica está gobernado por una única ecuación diferencial y analizamos el comportamiento dinámico del modelo. A modo de explicación, realizamos una simulación del modelo en el tiempo y en el espacio.
